Friday at last, the most anticipated day of the week, since for those who study or have a standard-time job, it represents goodbye to 5 days of work, and hello to 2 days off. But if on Saturday night you fancy a couch and a movie, we’re going to review the best movies and premiere series from Netflix, Amazon, HBO and Disney + to watch this weekend.
The most anticipated premiere of the week -and the month- is on Netflix: With Army of Dead / Army of the Dead, Zack Snyder finally parks the superheroes and returns to the genre that saw him debut with the masterful Dawn of the Dead. His Army of the Dead promises a cross between that and Ocean’s Eleven, mixing undead and apocalypse with heists in a Las Vegas to the top of jumping zombies, Z priestesses and even a zombie tiger that is the star of the promos – it seems already Resident Evil: Outbreak 2.
But not only will the VOD viewer live this week from the undead, but Netflix also brings us the second season (and final) of El Vecino, with Spanish-style Superheroes in this series in which an egocentric man becomes a superhero. Something from Superlopez, something from Millar and a lot of national filter and traditional humor for a series directed by Nacho Vigalondo.
At Disney +
On Disney + Marvel series premieres: MODOK, based on the classic 60s supervillain with a disproportionate head facing a midlife crisis. Scraps of reality and some comic violence for an adult cartoon series that wants to play in the same league as DC’s huge and brutal Harley Quinn, another cartoon series that is hardly even for adults squeamish about ultraviolence.
On Amazon Prime Video
Amazon Prime Video gives us the marcianada of the week, of the month and almost of the year, because what Jiu Jitsu promises is a lot: In this shameless and bastard exploit of the Predator and Mortal Kombat series – well, what a coincidence that just now a new Mortal Kombat movie has been released-, the great Nicolas Cage comes out handing out ostias and blows Along with other actors and / or martial arts experts – Tony Jaa is around here – in this martian worthy of the Eighties Cannon without a doubt.
